DHAN Tourism for Development is an outcome of the four-year pilot project 'Endogenous Tourism for Rural Livelihoods' implemented in Karaikudi and Kazhugumalai in Tamil Nadu with the support of United Nations Development Programme and Government of India. One of the key learnings of the project was that the diversified livelihood opportunities exist in the tourism sector can contribute in poverty reduction. 'Tourism for Development' would be crosscutting theme to facilitate DHAN's programmes working in the locations of tourism importance to capitalize the emerging opportunities in the tourism sector. It would be a multi-stakeholder and inclusive approach with all the stakeholders in tourism including the poor communities
